LIVE PA’s FROM SOME OF THE UK’s FINEST;
Having negotiated classic albums lost to corporate slapstick and an apathetic UK scene that for a long time couldn’t get its arse in gear, Blak Twang is undoubtedly a cornerstone of UK hip-hop. The boy Rotton is as British as bangers and mash, holding down South London via Birmingham and Manchester with a gong-heavy …mantelpiece, and a collection of air miles best described as ‘mega’, such is his international acclaim. A perennial stage and festival rocker, Twang’s standing stretches back to his revered LPs from the 90s. The ‘lost’ but soon to be re-released Dettwork Southeast – which would evolve into 19 Long Time: Live from the Big Smoke, complete with the same label complications – made Hip-Hop Connection’s top 5 UK hip-hop albums of all time. Quite simply, the man is no nonsense.
KINGS OF THE CITY//
Kings Of The City are of the most exciting and innovative new acts to come from the UK in a long time. They have performed to over 20,000 people in Trafalgar Square, embarked on a 12 date O2 Academy UK tour supporting MAVERICK SABRE, released 3 hit refixes of contemporary records with for SBTV.co.uk and become the first band to record an acoustic Fire In The Booth for CHARLIE SLOTH’s show on BBC 1Xtra who describes them as ‘A fresh new sound for British rap. Pure dopness!’
‘A refreshing mix of raw bars, guitars, and hearts of kings! Definitely ones to watch!’
PRESS1 & LENZ WAN. Dubbed out hip hop/electronica/2step music from South London. Two life-long friends, battle rapper Press1 and all-round talented MC/actor Lenz Wan join together to form Camouflage Children. Formed solely to enter a battle of the bands competition at the O2 arena – which coincidentally they won. Bangalore Vol.1, the debut mixtape is out now.
